i updated my ipad 2 to ios 7.0.6 so it deleted the jailbreak of course but when i tried to jailbreak again using evasi0n, it says "iPad 2 (Wi-Fi) (IOS 7.0.6) is already jailbroken. Jailbreaking again is NOT recommended" and cydia is not even there, even the tweaks i installed,the jailbreak is completly deleted but it still says its "jailbroken" on the evasion program and i don't wanna click jailbreak button cause something bad might happen so can you help me?

This is because when you backed up and restored it also saved the file evasi0n uses to check if the device is jailbroken or not (evasi0n7_installed). You should be fine jailbreaking again.

Nope not because of restoring itunes backup. It's because OP used itunes update instead of restore. Downside of using itunes update is losing data space because of duplicate files.
